Welding and Metal Working

Abrasive cut off saw l.jpg
Abrasive Cut-Off Saw

  • Abrasive saw blade material is used to cut metal.

Acetylene regulator l.jpg
Acetylene Regulator

  • Used to reduce the high acetylene cylinder pressure to a workable constant prssure. Hose and cylinder connections are left handed threads.

Brazing rod l.jpg
Brazing Rod

  • Used as a filler rod when braze welding. May or may not be flux coated.

Copper coated mild steel welding rod l.jpg
Copper Coated Mild Steel Welding Rod

  • Used as a filler rod for mild steel oxy-fuel welding. The copper coating prevents rusting

Cutting torch tip l.jpg
Cutting Torch Tip

  • Used with a cutting torch handle when oxy-fuel cutting. The tip size is determined by the thickness of the metal.

Cutting torch l.jpg
Cutting Torch

  • Used with the cutting tip when oxy fuel cutting steel.

Slide10 l.jpg


  • A coated metal wire used for shielded metal-arc welding a variety of metals.

Slide11 l.jpg

Electrode Holder

  • Used to mechanically hold the electrode while conducting current from the electrode lead.

Flashback arrestor l.jpg
Flashback Arrestor

  • Used to limit damage from a flashback by allowing the gases to flow in only one direction, preventing the flame from burning back into the equipment.

Friction lighter l.jpg
Friction Lighter

  • Used to light torch’s for cutting and welding. Safer than using matches or a lighter.

Slide15 l.jpg

Ground Clamp

  • Used to connect the ground lead (cable) to the work. This provides a completed electrical circuit.

Inert gas regulator l.jpg
Inert Gas Regulator

  • Regulates shielding gases such as argon, helium and carbon dioxide. Used for MIG and TIG welding.

Slide19 l.jpg

Leather Gloves

  • Used to protect the hands from the ultraviolet rays and spatter of hot metal.

Mig tips l.jpg
MIG Tips

  • MIG tips guide the welding wire through the gun nozzle.

Mig welding gun l.jpg
MIG Welding Gun

  • Used to deliver the wire and shielding gas to the weld surface.

Mig wire l.jpg
MIG Wire

  • Used as filler wire for the MIG welding process. May be bare wire or flux cored.

Mig nozzle gel l.jpg
MIG Nozzle Gel

  • Coating applied to lubricate the welding wire and tip for smoother wire flow during the welding process and cut down on splatter.

Slide26 l.jpg

Oxygen Regulator

  • Used to reduce the high oxygen cylinder pressure to a workable constant pressure. Hose and cylinder connections are right-handed threads.

Pipe cutting guide l.jpg
Pipe Cutting Guide

  • A variety of different types of guides that clamp around pipe to aid in cutting angles etc. Pipe cutting guides are available in a variety of sizes.

Porcelain gas cup l.jpg
Porcelain Gas Cup

  • Non-metallic cup that directs the flow of shielding gases when TIG welding.

Protective leather sleeves apron or coat l.jpg
Protective Leather, sleeves, apron or coat

  • Used to protect the body from harmful ultraviolet rays and hot molten spatter while welding.

Slide32 l.jpg

Slag or Chipping Hammer

  • Used for slag removal from shielded electrode weld.

Slide34 l.jpg

Tip Cleaner

  • Used to clean and partially recondition both welding and cutting tips.

Torch handle l.jpg
Torch Handle

  • Used to mix fuel gasses and oxygen in the correct proportions.

Tungsten electrode l.jpg
Tungsten Electrode

  • Non-consumable electrode that generates the arc when TIG welding. Can be purchased in a variety of sizes.

Vise grip welding clamp l.jpg
Vise Grip Welding Clamp

  • With its flat and “U” shaped jaws, it is used to clamp metals quickly.

Slide39 l.jpg

Welding/Cutting Goggles

  • Used to protect eyes from damaging light rays and heat rays that may prove destructive to eye tissue. Should not be used for arc welding.

Slide40 l.jpg

Welding Helmet

  • Used to protect the eyes and face from the harmful arc rays and molten spatter produced when arc welding.

Slide41 l.jpg

Welding Tip

  • Used for all types of oxy-fuel brazing and welding.

Slide42 l.jpg

Wire Brush

  • Used to prepare metal for welding or cutting. Removes slag or rust . May be used to clean parts of machinery.
